Not a good day. OH has just been told he won't get paid this month -perhaps not next month either! :yikes: (he's a minor Director of a small company - it's either the Directors who don't get paid, or they have to lose staff, which means the work can't get done which means they'll all be on the dole! ) So I'm thinking what we can do to pay the bills. Now Bess will happily prune any shrub within an inch of her life - and loves to digs holes. She'll even weed a patio if you show her what you want doing. What d'you reckon? Anyone want to employ a gardener dog? (Just can't guarantee you'll get the results you wanted!).
